For those of you who are knowledgable in biochemistry and/or endocrinology, could you point me out to a good book or website(especially a book) where I can learn the basics of hormones? Does NHE cover a lot on how hormones work, and how certain variables effect them? Thanks in advance!

Roy - NHE is a great starting explains all the hormones without going into too much confusing detail.... it sticks with what you need to know and doesnt cloud the issue. Robb may be able to recommend better... which I too would be interested to read.... I want the "Metabolic Diet" but have another $200 worth of books to read through yet.

I second paul's view on NHE. It will give you a very good basic understanding with regard to how hormones work, and how they affect/are affected by exercise, nutrition etc.

It's a bit corny, but it's a good book.
